If you haven’t been here before: a note

In 2010 I decided to start changing my life to get healthy, to set a good example and to get ready for my wedding. Everything was moving along nicely….

On April 10, 2011 my ex, who was convicted in 2006 of sexually assaulting me during our marriage, and who hasn’t been part of the lives of his children in 6 years, decided that he wanted them to ‘benefit’ from a relationship with him and his new fiancee and their little blended family of children.

This blog isn’t just about fighting my way into a gorgeous white dress. This blog isn’t just about fighting my way to a healthier body. This blog is now also about fighting for my safety, for the safety and best interests of my children and about fiancee B, who holds my hand the whole way. This blog is about how I get my life back after domestic abuse.

Some posts with be funny, some boring and some will deal with the very real aftermath of leaving abuse.

Thank you for reading our story.


**update** I’ve moved. If you know me, you’ll know where to find me. If you don’t, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll see if we can connect.

    I followed you for quite some time last year. Due to time constraints, I had not checked in on your blog for some time, and was sad to see you had moved! I would love to continue reading about your life moving forward, though I understand if you wish to remain private.
